An absolute MUST. Upon arrival we were met by two wonderful women, who didn't speak a lot of English but we got by. They made every effort to make sure we understood everything you will need to know, including giving us a grand tour of the castle and a bit of history. They recommended a fabulous local pizzeria. On top of this we had the castle to ourselves!!!!
Yvonna thanks for the nice accomodation. The ladies taking care of the place were very friendly and helpful. The castle was in great condition and it was a very unique and special place to stay. Although it took us some time to get to the place, the little town (Roccastrada) was also very nice to visit. Also, what we liked of the location, was the fact that there was a pizzeria restaurant opened until 11pm (which was very unsual to see in Toscany) and a bakery shop that baked fresh bread every day. Thanks for the great place and also, the owner gave us great trips of places to visit nearby. I highly recommend this place to stay and have a great memory of the Toscany falvour!
Siamo stati molto bene, i proprietari gentili ed ospitali.
Posizione bellissima, giardino molto rilassante, e bella (website hidden) è sembrata un po' alta la cauzione e anche le spese di pulizia.
Complessivamente esperienza positiva.
The castle was just as pictured on line! Our family enjoyed the adventure of staying in a little hill top village in the castello. The people in the town were very friendly, the caretakers were attentive and helpful, and accomodations were unique. Yvona was good to work with for the arrangements and always responded in a timely manner.
The castle is amazing!
We had the chance to book an apt inside there, for each couple of our group, so we had the right privacy and had the opportunity to hanging together in the shared spaces: a court, terrace/garden and a huge living room.
Each apt was clean, furnished with ancient beds and couches, and sometimes fireplaces.
The staff is so polite, they helped with directions and informations. They don't stay at the castle, but live in the town.
The town is so tiny (300 people), and in the middle between Sienna and Grosseto, so better you get a car to visit the area.
In one sentence: it's perfect if you want a quiet retreat.
a highlight in our journey.. staying in a castle in Toscana!! We were the only occupants at the time.. and have the castle to ourselves. Lovely walk around the countryside, and very lovely and friendly locals. In the middle of little village surrounding by farms. True Italian country experience!!
The castle was absolutely beautiful, very quiet, and the apartment had not only two beds but two full bathrooms as well. Our favorite part of the place was the grassy terrace that looks out over the valley, with a little table set under a grapevine-- a perfect place to relax. The hosts were lovely and helpful-- we got a bit lost on the way and they stayed up very late to greet us. If only we had more days to spend there!
